Here’s just a quick peek at the Wachau Valley in Austria. We took a cruise up the Danube to Melk. It was rainy and cold, but still very beautiful. I can’t find much in the way of history on Hinterhaus except that it dates back to the Celts. This is one part of Austria that I would visit again. I would take time to stay in the small villages. Bike to the wineries. And explore the many ruins in the valley.
Yep. I’ve been AWOL for a few months now. No particular reason other than I just haven’t spent that much time on my computer – and I have a huge queue of unread email to show for it. And it’s not that I don’t think about writing blog posts because I do. Often even. It seems as if there’s a disconnect when it comes to taking those ideas and putting them down for all to read. But a few weeks ago (in a forum on Ravelry – the “Facebook” for knitters like myself) I noticed a challenge. 26 blog posts ranging from A-Z. So here goes. I vow not to be absent any longer. So sit back and relax and prepare for what will undoubtedly be an eclectic mix of topics.
Absence of occupation is not rest; A mind quite vacant is a mind distressed. William Cowper
. . . Another fall, another turned page. – Wallace Stegner
Although technically it’s not officially fall yet, it’s just around the corner. And it’s wonderful. I’d have to say that fall and winter are my favorite seasons so I feel a sense of excitement about it’s nearness. The photo above is a favorite of mine that I snapped couple of years ago while were on the motorcycle on a fall day. I’m fortunate that my husband is a patient man who humors me by stopping and letting me take pictures.
